I want to totally remove (not train or anything, really remove or disable) the spam filtering from Thunderbird. How could I do that ?

I've seen very old similar questions without answers, so I'm asking again in case there's a solution in a recent version of Thunderbird. Of course the obvious solution (disabling adaptive junk mail controls for the local folder and the account) doesn't work.

My version : Thunderbird 24.3 / Ubuntu

That folder is also where messages marked by Gmail with the spam tag are shown.

If your using IMAP to access the messages you can turn off the visibility of the spam tag/folder. The setting is the the Gmail web interface.

  • What you mean is that the problem is in gmail filtering, not in Thunderbird ? Makes sense. Gmail settings aren't clearer than Thunderbird ones but I changed them and I'll see how it turns. If it works I'll go back and accept your answer. Mar 13, 2014 at 15:09
